The Transantarctic Mountains expose the roots of an ancient volcanic arc system. I traveled there with a team led by Dr. John Cottle to study these deep arc rocks (and also some layered volcanic sequences at Butcher Ridge). We camped in the "deep field" for two months with snow mobiles and crampons (and, occasionally, a helicopter) for transportation.
